After watching and reading about the state treasurer’s debate I thought to myself that with ex-Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman’s line of “bull” he should be selling used cars. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/2014/07/08/treasurer-candidates-get-loud-debate/12393627/.
More than a decade ago, former Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court installed a massive granite monument inscribed with the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the Alabama State Judicial Building.

What’s with our Republican politicians here in Arizona?
The Republican senatorial runoff election in Mississippi on June 24 was a great disappointment for conservatives and for anyone who believes in our founding principles.
We know all about past financial histories of failed governments. Every government with a fiat currency, like America’s, has failed. The maximum lifespan of fiat currencies has been 43 years. In America, we became a fiat currency in 1971, when Nixon took us off the gold standard. We are now in our 43rd year.
I can only imagine the machismo in the air at Wednesday night’s gubernatorial candidate summit on immigration and border security hosted by Mr. Muy Macho himself, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.
It can be useless to look back, except when it’s useful. Ten years ago this month, a loved former president signed off and out to return to his Maker. He was our commander-in-chief between 1981-1989.
While the average citizen struggles to save for retirement, some “public servants” will be making millions from “public service.” Fifty individuals walked away with a cash payout of hundreds of thousands of dollars, got a second retirement plan, and then started making over $100,000 in yearly pensions.

America’s poor haven’t been doing so well lately. Their political champions in the Democratic Party seem more focused on all those swing voters in the middle-income levels. And while income inequality has become a popular talking point for the self-anointed defenders of the poor, the fact is that the income gap has increased on President Obama’s watch.
A proposed utility rate increase in Mesa will bring in an additional $13.9 million in revenue, the city says.

It was 50 years ago Barry Goldwater declared “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” The political world gasped and he suffered a crushing defeat in the 1964 presidential election. Today, pundits and the “legacy media” commonly emphasize the importance of keeping those extremists marginalized.

Phoenix took in $46 million more this year than last year, but still faces a $38 million deficit. How does that happen in a growing economy?
Corrupt management and lack of pension annual checks and balances should lead to the arrests of those guilty of abusing the vital pension system. Their corrupt actions need prison sentences and fines for the pension system and employees they stole from.

The pension system for the city of Phoenix is on the verge of ruin.
